Boxing champ Manny Pacquiao, cosmetic surgeon Vicki Belo, and Miss Universe 2010 fourth runner-up Venus Raj are the country’s most credible endorsers this year, according to a survey conducted by Synergy Business Consultancy. Pacquiao topped the list, getting the nod of 47 percent of the respondents, reports ABS-CBNNews.com.
Meanwhile, Belo’s credibility rose seven percent this year. "If you’re (involved) in a controversy, it pays to be the aggrieved party. Such is the case with Vicki Belo and Kris Aquino... This is a very Filipino trait that we observed in our country," Synergy Managing Director Germaine Reyes said.
Survey respondents also named telenovela stars Angel Locsin, Gretchen Barretto, Angel Aquino, Derek Ramsay and Cristine Reyes as credible endorsers.
Synergy Business Consultancy conducted the survey from September to October, among 1,000 male and female respondents, aged 15 to 60 years old.
